The place is clean and fish is fresh, service is average. The waiter repeated the order 3 times and still got it wrong. He took the cloth napkins out and brought paper napkins. Other than the fish.. menu items are average with poor quality of taste trying to make it look fancy.. Sauces, soups and apetizer were blend, no real... More

Just had another great meal at the Sanbok this time I got to speak with their executive chef Antonio who had spent 12 years in Manchester my home city. He guided me through the fish on offer and settled on halibut that he served up deliciously in his native Italian style. As an appetiser he came up with spectacular fish... More

We were up in Khobar for the weekend to enjoy the after rain weather, we took advice from some of our friends, and had lunch in this remarkable restaurant, top quality fish, top service and the taste of the food simply amazing. Best lunch so far in Saudi Arabia.. enjoy it.

I had dinner at alsanbok. the resturant is located in a nice location in the isobar corniche in the Arabian Gulf. I tried the sea bass fish. The price is a bit high and need to be reconsidered. The service level is good.

High food quality and service it's the best if you have an business launch or have a special someone but it's a bet pricey but worth it.

I wonder what is the actual name of that fish,but locally called "Hammam " which means a pigeon in Arabic,which is a strange name for a fish; however the oven grilling of it + the grilled lobster were superb. For sure I will go for the dish again on my second visit prior to trying something else.
